Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

For all of the miracles of modern technology, the bottom line is that a good story still catches people's attention no matter the technology that delivers the story.

 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?"
Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did."
--John 4:29,39 TNIV

 The Samaritan woman runs back to town simply telling her story, her encounter with Jesus. She didn't use a clever evangelism presentation, or a regimented argument for the reasonableness of the Christian faith, but simply, "Come see a man who told me everything I ever did." She told her story.

Your story is powerful; you're the only one who can tell it. Maybe we become evangelists not by learning a method, but merely by telling another person, "This is what Jesus is doing in my life, this is what he means to me." Our job is not to PROVE the faith, to win an argument, but it is to share with others the hope in us, that's our story! Share it.
